I met up with Brenna and Bryce for their sunset engagement session at the Great Salt Lake State Park on a warm September evening. I almost immediately fell in love with Brenna and Bryce’s style and felt so inspired by not only the gorgeous location, but by their clothing choices as well. We first took photos in the beautiful tall grasses where I got to know the couple before their October wedding. After frolicking in the grass for a while, they changed clothes. I always suggest, if you are planning on changing clothes during an engagement or couples session, to wear the more “casual” option first and the more “dressy” option second because the second half of the shoot is generally when the light is the absolute best 🙂 I love how they chose neutral colors that complimented each other while still showing off their unique style and point of view.

After they changed at the bathroom, we went to the edge of the water before the sun started to go down. It was so pretty. The Great Salt Lake is an amazing location for many reasons, but my favorite being watching the sunset there. The sunset this night was unlike anything I had ever seen – pinks, oranges, blues, and purples painted the sky. It was surreal!

To take photos at the Great Salt Lake State Park, you will need either the state parks pass or a day pass to enter into the park. As of 2022 the price for a day pass is only $5.00. Although there is no special permit to take photos at the park, that could always change.

If you’re thinking about having a sunset engagement session at the Great Salt Lake, reach out! It is always a pleasure getting to visit this stunning state park 🙂

We spent about 30 minutes taking photos in their first outfit and then changed for the sunset photos. Look at how beautiful this sunset was!
